One of Elimination
“The problem that is presented is practically one of elimination. To include all that is necessary for the elucidation of the composition, and to exclude everything that is unessential to a clear statement of the dominant underlying idea, taxes the abilities of even the best artists to their utmost. I must not be misunderstood to say that every great work of art must necessarily be simple in its composition, for many of the great masterpieces in painting are built up upon very complex geometric lines. In fact the nature of the composition is largely dependent upon the subject and the manner in which it is intended to be represented. I am now alluding mainly to the linear compositions, there being also tonal treatment, mass compositions, color compositions and combination of all these”.
